    Hey. [​IMG]

    I am very passionate about horses. I love show jumping, cross country and any sport on horse back.

    Is there anyone else that loves horse riding.

    If yes, what kinds of sports do you like to do?

    I would love to hear everyone's experiences.

    Thanks.

    My daughters and I love horses though we don't have any. But we love to pleasure ride. We don't have enough land for a horse right now.

    Thanks for responding. [​IMG]

    I actually don't keep my horse by my house. She stays at a boarding stable where we have to pay stabling fees.

    It's nice to see a family that's passionate about horses. [​IMG]

    Hi from an ex South African! I moved away in January. I had to leave my Boerperd stallion & Thoroughbred mare behind but I train about 30 horses here now. I did showing, dressage & gymkhana. Now I train the top level showjumpers here.

    Wow the horse lovers are all over the world!!! [​IMG]'

    Welcome South Africa and Israel Yey!!! (MY son was there a few months back)

    I am in the UK and I don't ride now but love Horses. I used to ride to hunt, and had my own horse. I also taught at 2 local riding schools until life took over.

    Now I am finally getting back to my roots again and I am considering what I am capable of and toying with the idea of maybe taking in a few donkeys, and possibly driving a small cart. lol.... save petrol at least.

    Maybe if my confidence comes back and arthritis allows I would find a lovely hack to enjoy one day. For now just a dream.

    Send us pics of your horses,

    Quote:Wow. You are a very good person, rescuing those horses. [​IMG]

    If money wasn't an obstacle, I would adopt every abused or neglected horse in the WORLD!!!

    Dream Big flamingauburnmustang,

    You never know what the future will bring.

    It must be such a good feeling to rescue these animals and to value them as they should be, excellent stuff.

    I am animal nuts, but horses are such spiritual creatures, love them,

    Jena.
